Our Avalon Elle turned three months over the holiday weekend, she is officially an entire thirteen weeks old now. Happy three months to our littlest lady baby!
I feel like Avalon has really matured this month, it has been so much fun to watch her little personality develop more & more! Overall, she is still pretty laid-back and just has the sweetest, calmest demeanor. She loves to snuggle more than anything and is almost always happy, her smiles are absolutely contagious and you can’t help but smile right along with her. We laugh because although Waverly was a happy baby too, they just seem so different, it definitely seems like Avalon may be the more chill babe of the two. There is really no better word to describe her than sweet, I could just eat her up! 🙂
New milestones are that she can grab onto things now, she is more interested in what is going on around her just in general, she can last longer on a playmat and likes to look at toys that we hold in front of her. She is so close to rolling over, it should happen any day, & as crazy as this sounds, I think sitting up may not be that far behind. For as little as she is, she is incredibly strong and any time we lay her down she immediately starts pulling her head up to sit on her own. Maybe it’s true what they say, second children do things faster!
Sleep is going pretty well, we finally figured naps out after we realized that she was getting overtired and that we weren’t putting her down soon enough. She typically has between an hour to an hour & a half of awake time until she is o for over it. As for eating, she is still a great eater, she has figured the bottle out after a week with me back at work! It really is such a relief, I was starting to get worried that my mom would have to drive her to my school so I could run out and feed her! We have had some issues with reflux, our pediatrician prescribed her Zantac & so far, it seems to be working so well. We are so, so thankful, there is nothing that makes your mama heart break more than when your (normally happy) baby is uncomfortable & there is nothing you can do about it. Hoping that is behind us!
Avalon’s hair is growing, which is the opposite of Waverly, who was born with a little more hair & then lost it. It seems to be coming out curly, my husband has curls (ringlets!) when his hair is grown so it will be interesting to see what hers does. She is still in size one diapers & 0-3 months clothes, most of which are still really big on her, so I definitely think we have some time before the 3-6 get to make their debut! She is just a tiny little lady, everyone always comments on how small she is when we are out & most often think she is younger than she is.
